Students having to isolate/quarantine during their stay
If for any reason a student is ordered by local health authorities to self isolate or quarantine the following applies:
Students will receive online instruction until they are able to return to face-to-face instruction. Students may be asked and/or instructed to move to alternative accommodation to ensure they are able to follow local self-isolation/quarantine policies, which may incur additional costs over and above the original accommodation booking (cost). These costs must be borne by participants at their own expense. There are no refunds or credits if a student loses part of their original accommodation package. If a student needs to be accommodated independently for a period of time after completing their course, an additional accommodation booking will be required at the student's own expense. Additional costs may be incurred, e.g. meals, private tests, transfers. Students may return to their original accommodation booking as soon as the local health authorities permit.
Once the Credit Voucher has been redeemed there are no refunds or credits offered. Credit Vouchers are transferable only to immediate family members including siblings and parents and may not be refunded or exchanged for cash.
Credit Voucher issued in 2021 will be valid until December 2022.
